Our intent

At St. John Fisher, we believe in the value of sport. P.E. is an integral part of our curriculum, we have numerous school sports clubs such as Tennis, football, athletics, Gaelic football, Gymnastics, dance and netball. We have sports days for KS1 and KS2, and an interhouse sports between our houses in team sports.

It is important that children have some physical activity each day. All of our classes have two sessions of P.E. each week. We follow the Val Sabin programme for PE and cover all areas of the PE national curriculum. All KS2 children get the opportunity to swim each term too. We are hoping this will be able to c

There is a wide selection of extracurricular clubs for children to take part in. Class teachers and outside agencies provide a variety of afterschool sessions targeting different age groups throughout the school. We are commited to entering external competitions whenever possible and love the opportunity to report back to the rest of SJF during our 'Good Work Assembly' every Friday.

PE and Sport 2020 -21 

Virtual and Digital games 

Already this term as a school we have taken part in quite a few challenges. The Yr6's have completed their Bike-ability course and all did really well. 

To try to encourage people to walk, scoot or ride to school we took part in the National campaign - Bike to school week ran by Bike-ability. 

It was lovely to see so many children coming to school on their bikes or walking and many have continued to do so.

Virtual and Digital Games 

Due to current circumstances we are not able to take part in the usual competitions so we are participating in school led competitions virtually through SSPAN. 


So far we have completed the 5K combined team event in KS2 and a Keepy - Uppie challenge across the school. 

Congratulations to the Year 5 team (A) who came first in their age group across Leicester City. Most of the groups had 44 teams competing so everyone did a fantastic job - well done. 

 During lock-down we kept busy with a weekly Fitness Challenge to set ourselves a personal target to beat every week

Sports Leaders!

At St John Fisher we normally have some very hard working, dedicated pupils who facilitate and run sports competitions and games during play-times and lunchtimes. Even when it's pouring with rain our sports crew still manage to keep children active inside with great games and activities. In our gallery below you will see some eof the activities that we have organised so far.

On the 27th October, some of our Year 5's and 6's took part in the Sportshall Athletics and came FIRST! As a result, are now invited to take part in the Leicestershire and Rutland Level 3 Finals on the 1st December. We even won the 'Spirit of the Games' award for our 'excellent sportsmanship, determination and passion' at the events. Well done SJF!!!

Year 1 are very lucky to be having 'balanceability' sessions with Ms. Pinel from St. Paul's. They are working on improving their balance and co-ordination and even learning ride a two wheel bike! As you can see from the photographs the children love these sessions. Thank you Ms. Pinel!

Beat the Street 21st-19th May 2021 

Have you registered your fob and card for our current initiative 'Beat the Street'? 

Beat the Street is a fun, free walking and cycling game which gets staff, pupils
and their families out and about in the local area, having fun and keeping healthy. The game is coming to Wigston & South Wigston this spring, from 21st April - 19th May

You will all receive a fob and a card to use from school, courtesy of Oadby and Wigston Council. How many beat boxes will you find? Don't forget to use the one outside of school to gain extra points every day. 

You can travel by scooter, bike, run or walk - come on everyone let's get moving and beat that street.

It has been so nice to see the children taking part in some after school clubs this year. The year 5's enjoyed football sessions and the the yr3's and 4's are currently taking part in after school Athletics sessions. 


We have also been lucky enough to welcome David from the Leicester Tigers to come and do some Tag Rugby sessions with the year 3's, during their PE lessons.
